Our home

Our modern bright family home was built approximately 10 years ago. It is in a lovely peaceful development with 7 other family homes and a large green in the middle. Across the road, (via a pedestrian crossing) is a Blue Flag lake with a large park and two playgrounds, one for teenagers and another for younger children.
Our house is 1km along a path with streetlights from the small town of Loughrea. The town has all you could need, shops, bars and restaurants.
Loughrea is less than half and hour from the amazing Galway City... the main city halfway along the Wild Atlantic Way. Galway combines modern and quaint, with its cobbled pedestrianised streets and atmosphere buzzing with excitement. It is regularly tipped as a top city to visit for culture and food in the world’s most reputable guidebooks!

Who we are

  1. We are John and Orla, a doctor and a homemaker, we have three boys, Diarmuid age 15, Liam age 13 and Fionán age 8. We are a very "outdoorsy" family who enjoy sports, walking in the local woods and pottering on the local beaches. I run most days and my husband likes to compete in triathlons. As a family we enjoy Galway's vibrant arts scene and huge array of street performers!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Loughrea is a small town less than half an hour east of Galway city. It is 1h45 minutes from Dublin airport and only 45 minutes from Shannon airport. Galway itself is a vibrant city, full of music and colour. It is buzzing with festivals of all kinds during the Summer months. It combines the modern and the quaint, all in a spectacular location. West of Galway is the wildness of Connemara with its mountains and deserted beaches. South of Galway and less than an hour from our home in Loughrea are the spectacular Cliffs of Moher and the amazing landscape of the Burren.
